Praise for an officer

To Whom It May Concern:

I wanted to praise - on the record - the performance of Officer Mark Bergeson (#7531). Earlier this evening, my car was hit by a (likely) drunken driver who quickly fled the scene. Officer Bergeson quickly arrived on the scene to address the situation. Throughout, he was courteous, professional, and calm. Not only did Officer Bergeson ensure that I was all right, but he helped me track down the vehicle which hit me, worked with me to ensure all insurance issues were set up, and helped ensure I eventually made it home. Truly, I could not have asked for better public service. In my opinion, Officer Bergeson exemplifies the professionalism and service to the community for which the Austin PD is known; the force is lucky to have him!
